What to watch for Maryland: Turnovers
Turnovers have been a long plaguing issue for Maryland’s offense, and this season has been no exception so far. In their two games, the Terps have turned the ball over 24 total times, leading to Maryland having fewer field goal attempts in both games. While Maryland’s shooting has been red-hot to start the season, if that dies out the turnovers could easily come back to haunt the Terps.
What to watch for Mount St. Mary’s: Also turnovers
Much like the Terrapins, the Mountaineers have struggled to keep hold of the ball this season. In its first two games- a win over Morgan State and a loss to Navy, Mount St. Mary’s has turned the ball over 27 times. The turnovers were very costly for the Mountaineers against Navy, as Mount St. Mary’s lost despite making 11 of its 27 three-point attempts. In order to pull off the upset in College Park, Mount St. Mary’s will have to have better ball control.
